our economy tilt towards a certain highly privileged class that gets everything while the broad middle class and lower middle class is further and further left behind. this is the first major reversal of that trend. it's not just about kids with pre-existing conditions, it's about reestablishing a different social contract with american families and workers across a broad spectrum that begins to connect different ends of american society. that's why it's so important defining legacy building step for the administration. too bad it's been such a horrible rollout. it really is not just about kids and the poor. it's about the american middle class that's going to continue to see their jobs under stress, continue to see the kinds of things shored up, quality of life they had come undone. i think it's very, very important to remember this isn't just about small segments of american society, even though that was a very passionate and compelling comment from the congressman. >> it's very important i think to lead with children. no, it has great political impact. steve is right. our country no
that, currently standing at $17.1 trillion which is over 100% of the size of our economy. during that same 2006 debt limit debate, then-senator biden said -- quote -- "my vote against the debt limit increase cannot change the fact that we have incurred this debt already and will no doubt incur more. it is a statement that i refuse to be associated with the policies that brought us to this point"-- unquote. that was then-senator biden. mr. president, things have certainly changed since 2006. now president obama and vice president joe biden preside over an administration that tells us that raising the debt limit is merely a matter of paying our bills and is a a reflection of decisions made in congress. yet while it is ostensibly true congress has the power to raise the debt limit, it is not true that congress makes spending decisions. unilaterally. with no role being played by the executive branch. no amount of spending can be enacted without the president signing it into law. in addition, the president submits a budget every year. the white house also issues policy statements and
government. budgets are moral documents that reflect our priorities as a nation. for the sake of our economy, this congress must turn back from the current brinksmanship and obstruction and return to the practice of negotiation and compromise. the proposed budget and across-the-board spending cuts to domestic programs are continuing to splam families, children, -- slam families, children, seniors and impact to texas that include $9 billion to cuts in snap benefits over 10 years. almost $32 billion in cuts for texas seniors and the loss of over 5,000 jobs for our texas educators. we should focus on improving our education, strengthening old infrastructure, investing in advanced domestic manufacturing and paving the way for the future. let's show the american people that compromise and negotiation are not a thing of the past and washington can work together on their behalf. as elected leaders, we owe it to the american people to do the jobs we were sent here to do. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from indiana seek rec

that this body could do for the american people, for the economy and for the taxpayers. tomorrow, the senate budget conference that was established as part of this recent agreement that was made over reopening the government and extending the debt limit will meet. this will be the first public meeting of the group. we have had some other meetings, including one i just had with some of the members of that group, but this is the first opportunity for us to meet as house members, senate members, republicans and democrats in this budget conference. and it couldn't come soon enough. the opportunity we have with this group is that in the wake of what happened at the beginning of this month, which was again a government shutdown and then a debt limit debate and then pushing right up against the debt limit, the opportunity we have now is to finally deal with this issue of government shutdowns and to deal with the underlying problem of what we're spending that forces us to extend the debt limit time and time again. so let's start with the government shutdowns. the agreement that was agreed to opened
in massachusetts and the national economy, the incredible growth of clean energy, energy efficiency and the jobs that come with these industries. according to the massachusetts clean energy center, our state alone has gained 20,000 jobs in these sectors since 2010, with another 10,000 new jobs expected in the next year alone. massachusetts has become the nation's most energy-efficient state. boston is ranked as the nation's most energy-efficient city. our shores will host the first offshore wind farm with a new construction terminal built in new bedford, allowing our fishermen to work alongside our wind energy workers. massachusetts is number seven in the nation in deploying solar energy, even though we're more well known for the perfect storm than perfectly sunny days. these advances, these jobs, these technologies have flourished in massachusetts because we have set the right policies and encouraged our companies to lead. massachusetts governor deval patrick set high goals for clean energy in our state and we have already surpassed them. boston mayor tom men even owe wanted -- menino wanted bo
of what the government closure cost the economies neared the major national parks? questions come up that the interior department paid to states for running the parks in 1995 and 1996. why can't you do now? >> that is what i call multiple probe, to questions of wants. [laughter] generateational parks $26 million a day in economic activity. everyday day is not equal. every park does not generate as much active the as the next one, so we are still trial -- tallying the numbers. for concessionaires, people were furloughed and did not get paid. april were let go, food spoiled. there's a lot of loss that cannot be made up with what they would normally make in economic activity. we are still working on the numbers. we do not know them. the second one? >> repay the state? >> it is ms. information. the state in 1995 were not paid for money they gave. what happened, and it was only state, -- only once they come arizona, they said the deposit in, the shutdown and did, and the deposit was sent back. there was no money kept by the government in 1995. we had to understand that, but our records wi

that the united states is going to continue. it is the nature of our economy. not because we are superior or better. it is the nature of how we have grown and where we come from from the industrial revolution all the way through. the 1990s and the tech explosion. we will continue to lead the world in both innovation and education because of the nature of our communities and the structure and the openness with which they operate. i believe that people will have access here because we will continue to work hard to make sure that we have the most qualified workers one of the largest consumer market in the world. again, i do not say any of this with one bit of arrogance. i say it because that good news for america is also good news for the world. it is good news for you and your businesses. you know the importance of the american economy in terms of driving china's economy and other economies in the world. their importance is driving other economies in the region and elsewhere. it is a principle reason why we should invest in here. it is a top priority at a level unlike any before. you're sit
for an economy. i will not say market oriented because it's not there yet but it's definitely moving in that direction. the question i wanted to rescue was, you know we were talking about the negativity? to me, a good portion is coming from the various inspectors general reporting from afghanistan. you think you will get to the point where they can series the handle transfer of funds? >> no. >> pretty straightforward answer. >> i don't think they are to that point out all. the gm representative and dealer. there are real glimmers of enterprise. this is a significant deal. these women work during the day and they come to this place right to the american university campus to get the skills that they need to go into business. i know it will happen overnight and it's a real significant change to be a part of. >> i'm from the naval postgraduate school. it's great to have you here and listen to what you are saying. i want to start with what you opened with was telling the stories of the public that's it. the president was so good about telling the story when he campaigned then he lost that
's critical, obviously, to the fed and to the economy. adp number out this morning, not so great. let's check in with you at the nyse. >> you're absolutely right, and we will get to that but we want to start, ty, with the fireworks on capitol hill as kathleen sebelius goes before the house energy and commerce committee. bertha coombs is on the case on capitol hill. over to you, bertha. >> sue, the hearing lasting more than three and a half hours and members of congress usually a little more def ren shall to a cab meth member but they did hit secretary kathleen sebelius hard on a number of issues. she started out by apologizing and taking responsibility for the website nurse and it's improving every day. clearly there have not been enough but she said none of the contractors who said they raised red flags said the problems warranted delaying the october 1st rollout. when pressed by congresswoman marcia blackburn about some of those critical late decisions that may have contributed to the failures and who made them in her staff sebelius said ultimately the buck stopped with her. >> i'm not poin
as he shut down the government, cost the economy $34 billion and had jobs go down the toilet. so you can only marvel at what they call in texas chutzpah. >> back to your point, what is truly marvelous, people are falling for it, the article you pointed out says he looks like -- help me, the actor. >> bill murray. >> apparently reality has left my own brain. bill murray, except bill murray is a satirist, and people get he's been a smarmy see-through guy. it's astonishing the whole world isn't cracking up like we are. >> it's worse than a bad halloween costume. >> it's terrifying -- i'm sorry -- >> where is the divide. as they say in -- cut myself off there. are we saying good-bye to norm? apparently we are. resident scholar, norm, i hate this part of the show. thank you so much for your time. his book is "it's even worse than it looks." >> it's a great halloween gift. >> thank you for your time, norm. >>> coming up starting tomorrow, 47 million americans who receive food stamps will see a dramatic cut to benefits but for republicans $5 billion is not nearly enough. we will discuss the war
difficult for the market. so i think we have to be careful in here. the economy is moving along, but it's kind of like a jalopy. swerving all over the road. moving slowly, still moving forward. >> one of the big stories of the day, rick santelli, was the backup in yield. tell us what happened in the market today. >> it really was more yesterday than today. even though we've held it. if you look at a two day chart it really says it all. yesterday after the statement, we dropped down to a 247 yield. a very significant technical level. 38% retracement of the move in rates which monitored 136 basis points from may to september. having that hold and basically settling up at 2.55, i think is significant. if you look at the month of october from the vantage point of treasuries, 10-year note yields the last day in september were 2.61. we've only shaved off basically a handful of basis points. the big story is, you need to factor this in, is that europe went from the disaster to stabilization. but do we get overly optimistic? 12.2 unemployment in the ing aggregate eurozone. maybe a week from tod
-year treasury usually tracks the nominal growth rate of the u.s. economy. it's 2% real and 1.5-2% inflation. so i think the ten-year treasury yield is heading up. and i think if you hold treasuries or utilities or telecommunications stocks, you know, you're going to be affected negatively by the rise in yields. liz: from an investment stand point, what keeps you up at night lately? >> what keeps me up at night lately is a nonrecurring event, so-called gray rhino, you know? something that's very dangerous but hard to see in the bush. so it could be another terrorist attack, it could be the, some serious pollution problems in china, it could be iran deciding they're not going to negotiate on their nuclear program or syria not turning over all of its chemical weapons. but all those things seem to be going well now. so the background factors seem to be favorable. liz: let me bring it back to the federal reserve. when they do decide to begin tapering, will it unravel these markets? >> well, yeah, you got a good glimpse of it in may when bernanke just hinted that he might do some tapering. why are th
concerns the strong ism, good news for the economy, concerns the fed might start tapering as early as december. take a look at interest rate. the ten-year yield has been moving up the last several days. moving up again today as you saw, moved up around 1:00 as we heard news of the shooting. today the market much more defensive tone. you have utilities and health care stocks among the leaders. guys, back to you. >> thank you, bob. we'll be checking back. as we proceed on "closing bell" today. >> certainly an interesting day. we'll be following the developments out of l.a.x. the markets are about to close in about half an hour. with that much time to go, about 15,606 on the dow. the s&p up by just four points. >> much more on the shooting at l.a.x. as we continue our coverage for this friday. ♪ ♪ hey [ male announcer ] when we built the cadillac ats from the ground up, to be the world's best sports sedan... ♪ ...people noticed. ♪ something like a phenomenon, baby ♪ ♪ you're something like a phenomenon ♪ [ male announcer ] the cadillac ats, 2013 north american car of the
. the shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give this guy a honeymoon. they didn't give him nothing. they started going after him from the beginning. >> no. and they haven't learned their lesson. they just got their hat handed to them with their government shutdown and the debt ceiling, but they're going to keep this up. it's an ideological war they're fighting where these tea party members, they think the government is bad. not only do they think that obama's government is bad, any government is bad. so they want government to fail. which is a pretty outrageous thing. imagine when the iraq war was getting underway if democrat who is opposed the war and weren't crazy about george w. bush to begin with began denying troops body armor or denying them armored vehicles or things like that. that's the equivalent to what republicans are doing to the health care bill with not expanding med
's father said he talked to his son last week, who complained about the state of the economy. he did not have a job. he's been living in los angeles for about a year. he got his driver's license nine months ago. boat state and local officials say they have no trouble from paul ciancia. they're at a loss to explain why a 23-year-old who apparently didn't fly much would be so angry at the tsa, alex. >> is this going to change tsa policy? it's my understanding the agents are not armed. >> they're not armed. we haven't heard from tsa about that. i doubt that it will. in most airports there are armed tsa. they come in close contact with members of the public. they don't want to have that image of somebody who is scary and potentially a threat. they don't have that kind of training as well. they've obviously been aware of this threat from the beginning. but i heard no discussion that they should change the training or they are considering it. >> lax terminal 3 is still closed. >> correct. >> do we know how long it will be closed for? >> no, we don't. i don't expect it will be closed long.
. if the economy can get along, you can add 2.6 and get a home mortgage at 4.6 they're not about to give away anything on the bond market. i think that's why rates have stayed, other than when politicians messed things around in the middle of october, we're sitting at 2.6 and i think so the bond market says, we're not going any lower than this. >> we saw a pretty good spike last week. people were worried last week but there's always a cap. >> i think the cap is if this economy can adjust and move homes, which we're not forming households we're off about 300,000 in terms of hos hold formation. if we can get household formation back, we'll see progress. i think rates -- the bond market is saying we're not going anywhere. you can't talk us down any more fed chair. we see the rates coming. we know they're rising. >> what do you think? >> just given where how much rates rose on the threat of taper, that i don't think janet yellen, if she is, in fact elected as fed chair, is going to go anywhere close to pulling back too quickly. she's going to error on the side of being sl
. and this book attempting to attack those two questions was fundmental to how the economy functions. as far as i'm concerned, there's one critical issue which i think probably more than any other was, that was essential for writing this book. i had to discard the basic premise which all classical economists or those of us who were involved in that form of economics and computer-base models, and have to look at fundamental premise. and i basically assumed as we all did that not only, that fundamental premise is that human beings act in their own long term self interest most of the time. but the general belief of all economists who are forecasting, is while it is not only most of the time but when it isn't, it's random. and you can disregard it because it can't be muddled. what shocked me is when i started to try to actually model it and i was getting extraordinarily, extraordinary results. >> rose: and what were they? >> basically, that so-called animal spirits, which is a term -- >> rose: talking about the john -- >> precisely. and they are deep seated aspects of human nature. predictable ways
important role in our economy, our nation, and it is such an honor to be here this morning to kick off your annual conference, especially as you celebrate this milestone anniversary. i know that the members of this organization have seen some extraordinary things over the past 100 years, but it's hard to imagine any period quite like the last five years. back in the fall of 2008, we saw lehman brothers collapse. and i will never forget sitting in that famous the bullpen that mike bloomberg set up at city hall in new york. we were watching the giant television screen that get set up, and usually on normal days, taking on that screen would be how many potholes have been filled in the city of new york, how many lights were out in various places, all the major metrics he would measure for how the city was doing. very, very bloomberg. but on that day the entire screen was focused on cnn, on the floor of the house of representatives, and we were watching as the vote was being taken on the first financial rescue package. and at the very moment it became clear that that vote was going to fail, mike
the burns. just one pepcid® complete works fast and lasts. >>> it could take until march for the economy to fully recover from the effects of the 16-day government shutdown. in a new "usa today" survey of top economists, 63% say the repeated budget battles over the past few years have hurt the economy some or a lot. one economist says, quote, we're falling down a fiscal flight of stairs and we're bouncing from one step to the next, one crisis to the next. it's been estimated the shutdown cost the u.s. economy $24 billion, but at least taxpayers will get some of that back. the labor department says federal workers who collected unemployment benefits will have to give the money back since they will be getting paid retroactively. >>> let me bring in editor in chief "the economist" john micklethwait. more than half of the economists are less optimistic about growth prospects than they were three months ago. could it take until march to get over the effects we felt from this? >> i think it can. i was one of those people who were skeptical about that and thought it was just a political crisis.
the economy, to do so in a fiscally sound way. if you don't have revenue on the table, we've cut -- it's important to note that going into this debate they say there should be more cuts. there's been $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction. $600 billion of that has been from the expiration of the high-end bush tax cuts. $600 billion. $1.8 trillion have come from cuts. there's hardly any other place to go but nonetheless subject every federal dollar to scrutiny. cut where you can cut if it's d duplicative or whatever. do not say we're going to give tax breaks to the wealthy while it makes seniors may more for medicare as it voucherizes medicare. >> do you think in this process there'll be some flexibility on the sequester? i know there have been some who want to just do away with sequester. senator joe manchin and others are looking at can we have more flexibility. what's your position on that? >> if we have sequester we have to have the flexibility. and what senator manchin is putting forth is a reasonable proposal. but we would rather do away with sequestration. because it just cuts so muc
and there was no reason. >> think about what the economy was doing in 1999. the u.s. was coming off a period where we had reasonably strong economic growth, the unemployment rate was probably below 5%. it's not necessarily the behavior of the market necessarily, even though there are signs of consistency, it's more the fact we've still got the unemployment rate up above 7% and there's a sense the economy is just not clicking. >> i think it's poetic, that the money section in "usa today" "is the fed inflating a stock bubble," just as we're finally getting to a tapering -- did you hear plosser today? >> saying he wants to cap the signs of the balance sheet. >> he wants a number on the balance sheet. we're back to that. >> well, look, i don't know. i know too many people who own stocks and they're actually happy that they made money. i can't begrudge them. it's been a great time. the fed wanted the wealth effect to come up. all i can say is what has congress done to help the economy. what has the president done? they can't even build a bridge these guys. >> that's why the fed's the only game in town. >> the
was targeting housing as one of its ways to restart the economy. housing is not working anymore. i understand why they needed to keep it up. i think that the confidence was really hurt by the budget talks. >> the international companies that we trade, not hurt. europe, once again, pmi over in europe, so good, talking about ireland, spain, italy turning. those were the three. >> if portugal turns, holy cow. >> ireland has 5 million people in it. italy is a little more important. remember the big market. >> speaking of the bond market, people still watching the ten-year at 2.6. >> it has been argued if it does go higher, at what point can you say the fed has lost control, in the bond market. >> there was a huge gap, between 3 and 2.5. people expect 2.99. if you watch stocks like home depot, they rallied as rates came back down. that will be my canary in the coal mine if home depot starts going down. the housing stocks have all just floundered here. >> we are going to get there, time warner cable, of course. kellogg out today cutting 7% of their global workforce. >> you know what's a shame? the
again. the jobs report did not break down the growth of the freelance economy. freelancers have been around the retail and entertainment industries - they rely on them to do business. what is new is the growth of professional firm's reliance on consultants and contractors. freelancers with technical skills and advance degrees. for the companies it's a way to save costs and freelancers - the work they do offers independence and flexibility they can't get in a staff job. freelancing can come with pitfalls, the most obvious being a lack of job security. >> you have to hustle. you can't make a name for yourself and sit at home. >> lena is part of a growing workforce of skilled freelance labour. a trained lawyer she does part-time consulting gigs for large financial services firms. >> i'm hired by different companies, financial companies, investment companies, mutual fund companies and represent them at large financial planning broker dealing meeting. >> in between she does contract work at new york city lawforms. lena has not always been a hired gun. she had a full-time staff position be

economy in the world and she's going to be the chief executive officer for that for heaven's sake. we must hold her accountable. >> yes, but if she were to be fired or step down, you'd have to have a replacement in place very quickly. and that replacement would have to go through hearings in the senate. and i mean, you republicans, you would make hay on that occasion, wouldn't you? that's why i say ms. sebelius is not going to resign and she's not going to be fired. >> first of all, stuart, how can we do any worse? secondly, if the president presented someone who was qualified, had credentials and perhaps came from the private sector, knew something about the marketplace, really understand about human behavior and why people buy insurance and why they don't. i think they would fly through the senate. stuart: that's a big "if" though, if the president nominated somebody who was market oriented. >> true. stuart: congressman, we appreciate you being with us. it's going to be a big week for you and i hope you tell us what happens when you question miss sebelius. always a pleasure. mcdonald's,
